Fitting A Tooth Bonding Procedure Into Your Schedule

You know you would like to do something about your smile, but do you really have time in your schedule for a cosmetic dental procedure? Many people who assume that they have no time for treatment can discover that exciting changes to the way they look can be made in less time than they expect. A tooth bonding treatment can be completed in just one appointment, as there is no need to create a custom restoration and less need to modify the tooth structure. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can provide you with this service to address problems with the shape, size, and color of teeth that currently hurt the quality of your smile.

Tooth Bonding Treatment Can Lead To Results In Less Time Than You Anticipate

A tooth bonding treatment is a relatively conservative approach to cosmetic dental work. Instead of changing the appearance of a tooth by creating and placing a dental crown or custom dental veneer, we instead rely on a composite resin material to modify its appearance. This substance, which we also use to make lifelike dental fillings, bonds directly to enamel. When applied, it is able to address issues like discoloration, dental damage, and even problems with spacing that create gaps or overlaps!

What A Bonding Procedure Can Do For You

The tooth bonding process allows us to modify the shape, size, or color of teeth that hurt the overall quality of your smile. With this approach, we are able to make meaningful cosmetic improvements while limiting the actual changes taking place to your tooth structure. Crowns and veneers make some modifications to your enamel necessary. With the bonding process, we limit the actual changes to your tooth structure while making esthetic improvements!

What Else Can Your Dentist Do To Improve Your Smile?

Cosmetic treatment with porcelain veneers typically requires more time and changes to your tooth structure than a bonding procedure. With that said, the porcelain material that is used to craft these restorations is more durable than the resin used in bonding, which can make it easier to maintain results over a longer period of time. With dental crowns, we can make changes to your appearance while also addressing problems that might affect your oral health or bite function.
